Maryam, Nawaz reach London to meet ailing Kulsoom Nawaz
LONDON (92 News) – Former prime minister Nawaz Sharif and his daughter Maryam Nawaz on Thursday reached London to inquire after the health of Begum Kulsoom Nawaz.
They left for London via Doha by Qatar Airlines flight (QR-629). They will spend Eidul Fitr with Begum Kulsoom and return to Pakistan next week.
Earlier, Maryam Nawaz tweeted that she and Nawaz will return to the country next week. “I request the nation to pray for my mother’s good health,” she added, adding that she was eager to meet her mother.
On June 7, Nawaz and Maryam had sought a five-day exemption from appearance before accountability in the corruption references against the Sharif family. The former prime minister and his family members are facing three corruption references in the accountability court — Avenfield Properties, Al-Azizia Steel Mills and Flagship Investments — in which they are accused of money laundering, tax evasion and hiding offshore assets.
Nawaz and Maryam filed petitions seeking exemption from June 11 to June 15. The petition stated that both of them want to travel to London to meet the ailing wife of Nawaz, Begum Kulsoom Nawaz. The new medical report of Kulsoom Nawaz was also attached with the petition.
